This film illustrates the work of Marceline Day, a star of Silent Hall of
is the quintessence of a romantic comedy. It was the first film of Buster
Keaton after he signed a contract with MGM, and before the studio was able to
stifle his unique creativity and effectively grind his career to a halt.
In this film Buster Keaton is still at the top of his form and he creates a
string of breathtaking gags, which are masterfully connected with a nice story
and a beautiful romance with the outstanding silent movie star Marceline Day.

At Mad Magazine there was a saying that "monkeys are always funny."
The monkey in this film certainly is.
Despite its age, this is a delightful and fresh film. It is surely one of the most original and best films ever made.
Full of twists and surprises, it has one of the best endings too!

Simply Superb and Unsurpassed!
"The Cameraman" is an outstanding classic romantic comedy. It has so many hilarious moments that if you don't laugh your guts out, there is something wrong with you. But it is much more than just a comedy: "The Cameraman" stands out among all Buster Keaton films with its beautiful romantic story. Marceline Day's outstanding performance makes the film sweet, touching and glorious. In "The Cameraman" Buster Keaton and Marceline Day are at the top of their game both as individual characters and as a couple. Five stars do not give enough credit to this immortal piece of art.
